The Bangor-area has some very intelligent young people around with an immense amount of initiative and, man, do their futures look bright.

BangorMaineSchools posted this video on YouTube introducing us to two examples of Bangor's best and brightest.

The Maine State Science Fair took place at Thomas College in Waterville on March 24th.  According to the Maine State Science Fair's website, the yearly event is open to all of Maine's students to exercise and expand their STEM education:

The Maine State Science Fair (MSSF) is an exciting opportunity for Maine high school students to pursue their interest in science and present results of their projects to fellow students.

Bangor High School's Noah Robinson and Tyler Delargy won the State's Science Fair competition and will be heading to the International Science & Engineering Fair held in Pittsburgh this week to compete with students worldwide.  The website also shares how many countries are involved and what kind of money is involved in this event:

Each year, approximately 1,800 high school students from more than 75 countries, regions, and territories are awarded the opportunity to showcase their independent research and compete for on average $4 million in prizes.

Check out the two students in Pittsburgh representing you, Bangor!

The description of the video tells us why they are featured and what their plans are in the very near future:

Bangor High School Class of 2019 members Noah Robinson and Tyler Delargy won 1st and 2nd Award at the Maine State Science Fair and will present their winning projects at the 2018 ISEF (International Science & Engineering Fair). Tyler was also awarded first prize at the 2018 Northern New England Junior Science & Humanities Symposium.

Good luck, guys!  We have full confidence that this week will be incredible for them and it's only the start of their brilliance and success!
